Photographer Name Milind Sathe
Information At heights of more than 10,000 ft., these little houses seem carved out of the mountain slopes. They look so miniscule on the backdrop of the large bare mountains. I have always wondered as to how the inhabitants do not feel insecure at the prospect of a sudden landslide in these mountains which are so prone to such natural calamities. ( Spiti, 2011 ) - Milind Sathe The Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley located high in the Himalaya mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name "Spiti" means "The Middle Land", i.e. the land between Tibet and India. Spiti valley is a research and cultural centre for Buddhists. Highlights include Key Monastery and Tabo Monastery, one of the oldest monasteries in the world and a favourite of the Dalai Lama. (source : Wikipedia)
